FAQs FROM PARENTS
HOW SAFE IS IT?
This is the number one question we get all the time from parents.
In terms of safety, we've never had an incident happen during the trip and it's been running for over 15 years now. Wherever and whenever we are travelling there is always a leader present who knows the culture and Asia well. Your child will never be left alone.
Also, we have many people praying for the trip. We believe that God is protecting us as we go throughout different countries and cultures.
If you have any more questions in terms of safety, please email us at email@example.com
WHAT VACCINATIONS WILL MY CHILD NEED BEFORE TRAVELING TO ASIA?
Ask your local health clinic about basic recommendations.
IS TRAVEL INSURANCE REQUIRED?
Yes, it is required. You can either shop around to find the best price and quality for your child (see World Nomads Travel Insurance below) or see if you have coverage through work or your own existing insurance.
Travel insurance from WorldNomads.com is available to people from over 130 countries. It’s designed for adventurous travellers with cover for overseas medical, evacuation, baggage and a range of adventure sports and activities.
CAN I STAY IN CONTACT WITH MY CHILD?
On 7 Weeks in Asia, we put a limitation on their phones because we believe that it is a distraction for the 7 Weekers to connect with the people, their team and their destiny. Although, they can bring it on the plane as they travel from their home country to Thailand, but they will not be able to use it for the duration of the trip. Then half-way through, we'll let them contact parents and families.
If you have any questions, or need to get in touch with them incase of an emergency, you can contact the leaders - Alyssa Redner and/or Nathan Middleton, as they will be with them 24/7.
We will be posting photos and videos online every week through World Mission Continuum's Facebook page and Youtube, and 7 Weeks in Asia's Facebook page, and Instagram, so you will still be able to see what your children are doing. Click on the links below for more details.
"We felt so at peace with sending them. We knew there could be some hard times, but we also knew those times would build character and strength.
They LOVED the trip, they loved their leaders, and they loved their team members. Thank you for the time, the prayer, and the virtue that you inputted into their lives. We are so grateful."
"I am so glad my daughter decided to take that step out to go, not knowing anyone really, yet God is faithful and met with her there. I am so thankful for the personal experience she got to see God working miracles through her prayers.
It’s just a testimony of God’s word being true."
